Woman kicked in face during attack at home
A WOMAN kicked unconscious by an intruder at her boyfriend's home suffered serious head and facial injuries, a judge heard.
Victim Gillian Green was pushed in to a fireplace by Rachel Kempson, who then kicked her in the face as she lay on the floor.
The unprovoked attack left Ms Green with bleeding to the brain and a fractured eye socket, said Aliya Rashid, prosecuting.
Kempson, aged 20, of Nellan Crescent, Smallthorne, admitted a charge of inflicting grievous bodily harm.

She was sent to youth custody for two years.
Recorder Mr Stephen Thomas told her: "You engaged in disgraceful behaviour.
"You were clearly in a fighting mood when you went there.
"For some reason you went in to that house and when Ms Green tried to remonstrate with you, you pushed her in to the fireplace.
"If you had left it there, that would have been bad enough.
"But when her partner went to tend to her because she was clearly unconscious, you came over and kicked her when she was clearly defenceless."
Stafford Crown Court heard the house belonged to Ms Green's partner, Stephen Price, whose son Thomas was Kempson's former boyfriend.
Miss Rashid said all three were in the house on the afternoon of Sunday, April 15, when they heard a rustling sound outside.
Suddenly, Kempson burst in to the room and grabbed Ms Green by the hair and pushed her in to the fireplace.
Thomas, meanwhile, was confronted by a male who had also entered the property.
As Ms Green was on the floor bleeding from the back of her head, Mr Price went to tend to her, but Kempson stepped forward and kicked her full in the face.
Ms Green, who spent the next three days in hospital and underwent a CT scan, could remember nothing of what had happened.
Paul Hiatt, defending, said Kempson was also unable to recall details of the events because she had consumed a large amount of alcohol.
He added that she had not gone to the house to cause trouble.
